Jamie Dickenson instructs the following:
  • Yoga Class - Private Party

  • Event - Hip Hop Yoga
  •  
    IF JAY-Z AND JAMIE CREATED A YOGA CLASS, THIS WOULD BE IT...

    Led by Jamie Dickenson (RYT 500), this Hip-Hop Yoga class is an athletically powered, inspiring First Level vinyasa flow set to your favorite Hip Hop tunes.
      
    In this class, the serene sounds of waterfalls, birds and wind are replaced with hip-hop and soul tunes from acts old and new.  Doing Down Dog to Snoop Dogg in our blacklight room creates a vibe that most neighborhood studios can’t replicate.

     

    Jamie will blast a lineup of Drake, Big Sean, Lil Wayne, Miguel, and more new and classic hip-hop tracks, syncing an hour-long vinyasa flow practice to the high-energy beat of each track. The result is an intense, but hugely addictive experience that you’ll want to repeat again and again.

     

    The music gets you out of your head, allows you to get lost in the beat and to find a lightness in your practice. It helps you to remember that you don't have to take life so seriously all the time. Practicing sun salutations to Jay-Z and balancing in Dancer Pose while Beyonce is blaring through the speakers has to put you in a better mood.  Yoga plus great tunes equals magic!

     

    Fee is $10 per person.  Warning:  Music contains explicit language.
